Chikodzi's work explores the nexus between geological time and human memory that facilitates his conversation with the materiality of the stone. By thinking about the stone as a kind of supernatural material that transports him to future historical moments, Chaka examines the current politics of display in cultures of reception of Zimbabwean stone sculpture.
